2018/19 Teams

2018/2019 Season


Under 10’s

This age group is played in the Adelaide Turf Cricket Association (ATCA) on Sunday mornings. Age qualification for the 10’s is on the 01st September, for example to qualify for the u/10’s, a child must not have turned 10 years old on the 01st September for that season. This age group is seen as an entry to club cricket and a more structure environment.
Playing times are Sunday mornings, 9am to 11.30am (ish), with home games played at Edwardstown Primary School on a hard wicket. Trainings are held at Goodwood Oval on Friday evenings from 4pm until to 5.15pm. Boys and girls are welcome to be involved from any age 7 years and up. Under 10’s play a modified rule version on concrete hard wicket with pads and hard balls. It is participation based where each player gets and even opportunity no matter of development.
 It is encouraged that children first hone their skills at school and kanga cricket under modified rules until a time when they are capable to bowl a full length wicket and are seeking the next challenge of playing a more structured game.

Under 12B’s

This age group is played in the Adelaide Turf Cricket Association (ATCA) on Sunday mornings. Age qualification for the 12B’s is on the 01st September, for example to qualify for the u/12B, a child must not have turned 10 years old on the 01st September of that year. (We know it is confusing but this is an under 10 competition with less modified rules – only existing players of the club qualify for this competition). This age group is seen as under 10 cricketers in their second or third year of club cricket.
Playing times are Sunday mornings, 9am to 11.30am (ish), with home games played on one of our turf cricket wickets and against other local turf cricket clubs.

Under 14’s play on full length turf pitches and follow the traditional rules of cricket.  2 day games are 45 overs a side and the one day matches are 30 overs per side.
